Wis. Covenant Scholars Program


A Path to Higher Education for Wisconsin Students



The Wisconsin Covenant was created to inspire young people to plan early for a successful high-school career that will lead to higher education.  The Wisconsin Covenant Pledge is a promise that they will:


  • Earn a high-school diploma.
  • Maintain at least a “B” average in high school.
  • Complete the classes they need to prepare them for higher education.
  • Demonstrate good citizenship and participate in their community.
  • Apply for state and federal financial aid by April 1st.
  • Submit the WI Covenant Senior Confirmation Form senior year by April 1st.
  • Take the necessary steps to gain admission to a University of Wisconsin System institution, a Wisconsin Technical College, and/or a Wisconsin private college or university.

In return for meeting these goals and keeping the pledge, a Wisconsin Covenant Student will be recognized as a Wisconsin Covenant Scholar, expect to earn a place within our partnered systems of higher education, and receive a financial aid package, based on their family’s financial need, to help make college affordable.


The unique partnership represents the support of the State, our K-12 schools, public and private university and technical college systems, and the community all working together to help students do their best.
